"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The stories start out mild magic and fantasy scifi, and progress to satanic bdsm garbage.
Really? I mean, seriously, SATAN??? OMFG
To the publishers, and authors: WHY??? You are only defeating your cause and respectability.
Pearl Love her story is Covetous, and her Vice is Envy. This is a new to me author, and I will look for more from her. As much as this short story scared me I can recognize that means she told it very well!! to scare me that much. Jonathan has always wanted what others have, so what happens when he meets someone who can give him everything he has ever desired? What would you pay for your greatest wishes to come true? That old Chinese curse comes to mind for me. May you get what you wish for… Jonathan learns the hard way all that glitters is not always gold. The ending I am forever going to have nightmares about this ending. Shudders thinking on it now…. Okay now on to a fluffier story hahah thought I was gonna tell you more didn't you… these are too short for full reviews so your gonna get some teasers in this review.
One of my favorite authors is also in this anthology. Clare London. She has a modern day story called Traitor and her Virtue is Fortitude. Aiden and Cam were once lovers, now Cam is being interrogated by Aiden because he is a suspected terrorist. Is he really one? And can Aiden find out the truth about the man he still loves. This one has a great balance to. There is a true full short story here. Nothing feels rushed or out of place. I feel like these two have a new start and they are meant to be together. I loved this one. I love when true love wins the day, this story has that.
Another author I felt did an amazing story in this anthology is Serena Yates Her virtue is Temperance. The name of the story is Beyond the Temperance, I liked this one because it is really well done. I do not always love scifi but Ms. Yates really made me want more of Captain Jago and Pierce his quiet scientist doctor. There is a lot to this short story and I feel it could be flushed out to a full length story as well. Very well rounded and just the right amount of sizzle to it.
Over all there is not a story in the bunch that is not amazingly well written. I loved getting to know some new to me authors, and having my old favorites together. When you want an anthology that has a lot of different short stories to offer with MM flare, this is the one to pick up.
recommended read and five shooting stars
